"A web of family secrets unravels in this moving documentary following a family fractured by war. Two brothers, Izak and Shep, were born inside the Bergen-Belsen displaced persons camp in 1945 and separated as babies, never told of the other's existence. Nearly 70 years later, the discovery of family records leads the brothers to an emotional reunion with their elderly mother, Aida, who hid more from Izak and Shep than just each other"

You will have to be very patient. Unless you've not seen much regarding the subject of WWII, the secret(s) won't be that shocking. Most people will find it too slow and give up.

Aida, a lady in an old folks' home has a lot of secrets, many revealed in this film. This is one of the best documentaries of civilians affected by WWII, possibly everything after the war. Filming took place across the world over at least four years. The creators of the film really did not know that it would result in such a great story, as there were many dead ends only mentioned briefly in the Q and A session. This is one of the best independent documentaries I have ever seen.
